I won't bore you with lengthy explanations of this phenomenon, but according to the current stats tabulations, LiA and I account for 10% of all that has been written about the DEAD here at the Forum over the past ten years. Yes, TEN percent.

Scary, eh? Er, at least MY 5% is, don't ya think? This tally accounts for variation in post length (ahem) as well as total # of posts.

In any case, congrat's are due to LiA; as for me, continued silence may restore some order to this great imbalance.

Subtracting your Cream posts, your rants about the inferior 8/6, and your incoherent ramblings, that's more like .05%. Where's that dancing banana?

more accurate if rearranged comma ca:-

"Subtracting your ramblings about the inferior Cream and incoherent rants & posts, 8/6"

OK, I had to add the '&'.

The correct words are there, just in the wrong order.

Why draw attention to the fact that you account for a tenth of the entire Forum dork-factor (my wife's words, not mine)? Kind of like someone saying he's attended more Star Trek conventions than anyone else or set a record for completing the most levels in Dungeons and Dragons in a given time. Is that the legacy you want to leave? Some things are best left in the dark. Next to Rob's sheep. And Dire's cow.

I suspect, Mr. Wolf and Mr. Hollow, aka Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, that your posts account for the other 80%. And that's not including the occasional intelliegent ones--which account for--wait--calculator, please.

Is that an actual Stat.?

Well ahem must of course mean prestigious or Gordian, probably both.

Variation in post length + total # of posts= % written in forum

WT, not so fast my friend. BD & SDH are healthy competition.

I understand the hard won 12,256 posts by you and L.i.A's out of this freaking world 1810.7854, average length, put you two in a clear position of dominance. To be fair dead-head_Monte has a 2102.1263 length and if dire cranked it up again he would be 3K behind you, though dire your average length is pretty damn small.

Have a nice trip - and my average batting rating goes down b/c only 1 out of 100 of my posts actually deal with the Grateful Dead (although I'd be nowhere w/o them)

Forum Factoids -- re: nonDEAD, Dead, OWS, Taper Handbook, and Taper Compendium
After posting Dead stuff for about two years, I organized many of the Factoids around here, and I put together a few handbooks and journals. Many of my subsequent posts were created to give more structure and content to these handbooks. Don't confuse my intentions, my journalism, and my statistics with others, especially when it's obvious and clear what I was doing.
Yes, LiA could also be lumped into journalism. Actually, LiA created a blog. I posted and linked several of LiA's blogs and put several of them into my Taper's Handbook.

A new Taper Compendium was something people were asking for, so I created a demo compendium, and I cited a path for putting a new one together.

My Taper's Handbook for The Archive was something that was completely missing from this site, so I created one for anyone to use.

The Occupy Wall Street Journal(s) I penned is / are the only one(s) I have seen on The Archive. Not to mention, I created several informative Movie Items for The Archive's OWS Collection, and I brought several engaging OWS conversations to the OWS Forum here. So basically, I was doing some journalism posting, and then I was organizing huge amounts of information and media content.

Occupied Wall Street News
Let's not forget I also taped a boatload of shows in the early and mid-1970s. It took me awhile to put everything together and get most of my tapes put into circulation over the past four or five years, but I got the job done.

I would argue that these achievements define me a Digital Librarian here -- so let's get the Forum Factoids straight this time. For your information, I retired dead-head_Monte recently, and now these stats will not grow.

...no need to argue, you can simply state it. Unless you'd like us to argue...but that would be counter-productive. Your bluegrass recordings alone place you in the pantheon of legendary uploaders at LMA. Not that there is anything wrong with that.

Very cool link to all your other links/projects. Thanks for posting that. Wish I had caught Charlie & his band when he was in Norfolk, being a Virginian myself. I have a feeling we might have a few mutual friends.

well based on the stats, LIA is ranked 29th and you are 1st, so really, you and any of the other top 28 would have a higher percentage, beep beep
